The approximately 25 best papers appropriate to the central conference theme of 'Planning Support Systems for Sustainable Urban Development' will be selected for inclusion in a book, published by Springer Publishers. These 25 chapters will be selected, based on the outcomes of a double blind review process by the Scientific Committee. Chapters should be between 4000 and 6000 words in length, including notes, figures, tables, references, et cetera. All chapters should contain at least an abstract (max 150 words), introduction, methodology section, conclusions, and recommendations. Abstracts of the selected papers will be included in the conference proceedings. Inclusion of the paper as a chapter in the book implies the transfer of its copyright to Springer Publishers. Moreover, the selection of the paper for inclusion in the book also implies its presentation at the conference.
